Day 155 > Canada Goose Goslings

The adult Canada Goose may be considered a nuisance in urban areas due to their great numbers and the mess they leave in their wake but few can dispute the charm of a group of goslings in the spring.
The adults were surprisingly tolerant of my presence near their young today but I chose to stay low and let them come to me which resulted in my being surrounded several times by goslings close enough to touch and seemingly oblivious to me. (and too close for the 300mm lens to focus!)


  1. I hope you took the opportunity to touch these adorable soft looking babies!! I love them! and what a nice shot also!! : )

  2. love the color baby yellow in bright green, and yes, cuties. Funny how they don't look like gooses at all.
